Good music are always good, meaning they will be passed on to next generations. They are loved many and they get covered by many artists as time passes by. Good music are eternal.

The latest video to surface shows a traditional Japanese rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal, performed by professional shakuhachi (a Japanese bamboo flute) player Yuko Watanabe along with two backup performers on a koto (a stringed instrument, also the national instrument of Japan).
